This year’s primary election is extremely important due to the people who are running for offices as well as the controversial ballot questions. All three ballot questions affect people’s livelihoods. The third question particularly deals with human rights, as it is a question on whether or not the transgender anti-discrimination laws made in 2016 would be repealed or not. With the trans activist, Chastity Bowick, who spoke on October 23rd, as well as Transgender Day of Remembrance on November 20th, now is the time to hear from the trans community about this ballot question.
So, are you confused on what this law protects against or are concerned on how the repeal of the law would affect the transgender community?
The GSA, also known as the Gay-Straight Alliance, will be hosting a discussion about ballot Question 3 on November 3rd, 2018 from 6- 7 p.m. to better educate the greater Regis community on how this law affects our transgender brothers and sisters. Discover the problems and importance of the ballot question directly from members of the trans community.
